Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Whisk eggs briefly with a fork.

Step 2

Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl.
Add the eggs, a little at a time, beating well after each addition.

Step 3

Fold in the flour and cocoa powder until evenly coloured.
Dollop evenly into the two halves of the mould.

Step 4

Cook for 20 mins until well risen, it bounces back when lightly prodded, and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Step 5

Leave to cool if it's in a silicone mould (removing before cold will encourage it to stick!), then sandwich together with the jam.

Step 6

Melt the chocolate in a microwave.
Leave to cool to room temperature, but not to the extent that it begins to set in the bowl.

Step 7

Spoon the chocolate on top of the cake, allowing it to gently run down the sides of the doughnut.
Generously top with sprinkles.

This cake will keep for up to 1 week if you keep it in an airtight container.
